ANG AND THE RANCH HANDS
Mike Gunther’s primitive and patently American music melds fiery lyricism and unusual instrumentation with traditional elements of country, blues and soul. On Burn It Down for the Nails (Heart of a Champion), the second full-length release from Mike Gunther and His Restless Souls, Gunther leads a parade of eclectic players as they romp amid the shadows and flames of his storytelling. Gunther’s First LP, Every Dream Thatʼs Dropped and Died, (Heart of A Champion 2003) and charismatic live show garnered the attention of critics with Gunther named “Best Songwriter” in the City Pages annual Best of the Twin Cities issue.
The Dollys features three of Minneapolis’ most sought after female vocalists: Joanna Jahn, Kari Shaw and Megan Shaw. Harmonizing to the music of The Trio: EmmyLou Harris, Dolly Parton and Linda Rondstadt and many other female country artists of the 70’s, 80’s and 90’s. The Dollys also perfom folk and americana hits of the past, which they love to put their own spin on. Together these ladies bring their collective talents to the stage and the results are harmonies so tight you’ll swear you’re live at the Grand ‘Ol Opry!
